The pattern calls for Baby Yarn and to start with a chain of 176; ending up with 175 stitches in the first row. I used worsted weight and chained about 132. I ended up having to undo some of my beginning chain. Eventually I had 118 stitches in a row and 6 "waves" per row in the blanket.
Now to go work on the "Impressive Plaid" blanket I started this weekend while hubby was glued to the tv watching football.
